1100 North Plum

The Cosmosphere International SciEd Center & Space Museum includes a collection of U.S. space artifacts second only to the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, and the largest collection of Russian space artifacts outside of Moscow. This unique collection allows the Cosmosphere to tell the story of the Space Race better than any museum in the world while offering fully immersive education experiences that meet the Next Generation Science Standards and introduce students to the power of wondering—asking the critical questions that lead to discovery. The Cosmosphere also features the Carey Digital Dome Theater offering documentary showings daily and recently-released feature films on weekends; the newly renovated Justice Planetarium and Dr. Goddard’s Lab, where visitors experience live science demonstrations daily.

This museum was extremely impressive. They have the largest collection of US/Soviet combined space artifacts. The museum focuses on the space race and less on astronomy or cosmology. The exhibits are very detailed and explain everything you might want to know about each space mission and the individuals involved. The only negative I noticed was that some of the displays were repetitive, as I would find myself reading the same paragraph from a previous exhibit. I'll still give them 5 stars for how amazing and impressive the whole museum was. It was definitely worth the 2 hour detour.

Great educational venue. Lots to do involving science. Highly recommend Dr. Goddard's Lab. Extremely educational & fun. Plus, where else can you see a real SR-71 Blackbird? Great way to spend the day!

I took 2 twelve year olds over spring break. We loved it. The scientist's show was funny, exciting, and educational. There was so much to see all through the museum. Both the kids and I really enjoyed it. We got discounts at the Salt Mines for our Cosmophere ticket stubs too, which was great.

Great site. Very educational. A great place to take children to spend a day there when the weather outside is not pleasant~ It has a lot of exhibition and also has a few movies play at their theaters

Very interesting. Saw a real Lockheed SR71A Blackbird hanging in the lobby. Impressive! Very good display of US and Russian space programs in the museum.
